Admissions Appeals Procedure

Health Occupation Program’s Admissions Appeals Procedure

An admissions appeal will be considered if there is evidence that one or more of the following conditions exist:

• Error in calculation of points for admission
• Deviation from admission procedures as defined by the program website
• Disparate treatment of a student that is not addressed by EEO processes

If one or more of these conditions exist, the student should submit an appeal in writing to the Director of Health Occupations at 5000 Research Forest Drive, The Woodlands, Texas 77381.  The written appeal should address specifically what conditions justify an appeal.  This letter must be submitted within five (5) business days of the date on the notification of non-admission.

The Director of Health Occupations and the Admissions Appeals Committee will review the written appeal and respond, in writing, to the student within five (5) business days of receipt of the student’s appeal. The Admission Appeals Committee will consist of Program Directors and faculty from the various LSC health occupations programs.  The Director of Health Occupations will serve as the Chair of the Committee. The committee members will serve a one year term and new members to the committee will be recommended by their respective Deans.  Each LSC campus will have representation on the committee.

After the student receives the decision from the Admission Appeals Committee and the student wishes to pursue his or her appeal, the student will submit a written appeal, stating specifically the basis for the appeal to Associate Vice-Chancellor of Curriculum and Instruction within in five (5) business days of hearing from the Admissions Appeals Committee. The appeal decision by the Associate Vice-Chancellor is final.
